next experiment



Found some old photos (also called cabinet cards I have just learnt), including one of this not so happy bride. It is dated 1895 and I think I will (with her permission of course..)use her often. This is copied onto some 100% cotton especially made for printing on. Not sure where to go from here but I will persist....

Since starting this i have of course gone back to my seed head embroidery and have made a cool dragonfly out of wire beads and a screw. Will take photos soon.

PS I am in love with the girl in my new header, such an untypical pose for that era photo, she will also be popping up occasionally (see here)

The new header is fabulous and I love the stitching and lace on the cabinet card.
